Always look at the bright side of things (day 5)
Without a question, this was one of the best days of the week. The food was excellent and the morning view was astonishing. Today was the day everybody was waiting for: surfing day! You could tell that everybody was energised and ready for what the day would hold. Riding the waves and connecting with the nature. Though everybody ate sand, by the end of it everybody was able to stand on their boards (with the help of instructors). We were taught some of the basic techniques and what to look out for in the water. After the surf we all went to the pool and enjoyed 4 hours of relaxation time. We then studied some surf theory through exciting Q&A booklets! After that, we played football and volleyball with local Balinese students. There were a few scrapes and scratches, but overall it was a fun experience that allowed us to engage with the people. After dinner, we watched an inspirational documentary about a surfer who struggled through life. It taught us that nothing can stop you from doing what you love and to always look at the bright side of things.
